Web Components + Polymer workshop

With the updates to iOS and Android phones released last year, Web Components are now supported natively. That means that libraries built on top of Web Components, like Polymer, can be used to easily create fast Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) without the overhead of a framework. In this workshop, we'll begin with a brief introduction to Web Components and Polymer, and then dive into hands-on experiences with the core aspects of Web Components: the template tag, Custom Elements, and the Shadow DOM.
